In 2013, we released Feed-Safe™. The portable Feed-Safe™ feeding station, creates a safe haven for your smaller pet and its food by housing it within a fashionable dome that provides a secure, hassle-free environment. Developed and designed by AutoPets, Feed-Safe™ includes an adjustable sliding door that locks into position, allowing your smaller pet in while keeping larger pets out.
AutoPets, originally named Automated Pet Care Products, Inc., was founded in 1999 with the purpose of creating the best automatic self-cleaning litter box. The first generation Litter-Robot™ went on sale in April of 2000 and in 2006 Litter-Robot was retooled with many improvements. Since then, tens of thousands of Litter-Robots have been sold worldwide.
Kitty a GoGo
In 2010 AutoPets acquired the Kitty a GoGo™ designer litter box which was originally founded in 2003 by a designer/former clothing buyer and a medical design engineer. It seemed that so little style and variety was available to cat owners – unlike dog accessories, so the idea of a decorative, whimsical,and functionally innovative litter box was born.
Kitty Play Zone
Soon after, the Kitty Play Zone was invented– the product that brings both creativity and innovation to cat owners’ homes, especially young ones. This playground was created for the use of both children and cats, where kids can build and design their very own castle or cottage and cats can have their own personal playpen and feeding station. The Kitty Play Zone is made of white cardboard and can handle the imagination of markers, crayons, stickers, and most importantly, cats! The two-story high playground comes with two stainless steel feeding bowls and a climbing tower.
Location and Assembly
The majority of our products are assembled and shipped from Juneau, Wisconsin. We take pride in providing high quality products that are built to last. However, when something goes wrong, we have the capability to repair or replace components for all of our products. We believe that by making it right the first time, incorporating design features that allow for repair or refurbishment, and finally considering how a product may be disassembled at the end of its useful life for recycling goes a long way toward being a good steward of the environment. These values are also ‘good business’ and we continue to improve these concepts as we move forward with our new line of products.
As a co-located company, we are headquartered in Auburn Hills, Michigan, just north of Detroit – the automobile design and development capital of the world. In Auburn Hills we focus on new product development, marketing, customer service, and administration. Pet products and the automobile industry seem miles apart, but when it comes to high-tech product design and development, and the ancillary services needed to make that happen, Detroit and surrounding areas are great places to be. That also goes for marketing, customer service, and administration as we’re able to pull from a skilled and experienced workforce.
We Encourage Your Suggestions
We look forward to serving you, and we welcome your comments and suggestions on how to improve any of our products. Or, if you have a great idea for another pet product that meets our company goal of designing and manufacturing products that make life easier for pets and their owners, we’d love to hear from you!
